Question and Answers

Q:

need to replace dryer door handle # 11076812690

A:

Thank you for your question Mike.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the dryer. I will be happy to assist you with replacing the door handle. If the old handle fell out you just have to snap the new door handle in. the handle on the dryer door has a few tabs that secure it. If it is still in the door, you will have to disassemble the door to remove the handle. I have found a video that shows how to take the door apart. Click here to watch the video. Once the door is apart push on the tabs and the handle will come out.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the dryer.

Q:

Ok. I replaced the coils; the flame seems stronger but still last for about 15-20 sec .Then flames again in about two minutes. It repeats this cycle.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I think there might be a problem with the vent. If there is not enough air movement in the dryer, the flame is not pulled into the burner tube. There is a thermostat on the top of the burner tube that is most likely over heating.

A quick test is to remove the vent hose on the back of the dryer. Then open any windows in the room. Just so the exhaust and heat can escape. Then start the dry on timed dry high heat. If the flame comes on and stays on longer the problem is the vent is restricted somewhere.

You can clean the venting yourself or have a duct cleaning company do the job for you. If the venting is the white vinyl hose, it should be replaced with a metal vent.

Please let me know if this does now work.
